Well we are now in the need of #2 corner. Wonder if they are going to make a run at FA or attempt to draft one?

Not sure I like this move. Our lack of pressure made Bly look way worse than he was imo.

Broncos Make Another Move, Release Bly

DenverBroncos.com

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- A day after releasing six players, the Broncos have made another transaction.

On Tuesday the team announced the release of Dre' Bly.
Bly, an 11th-year player, spent the previous two seasons with the Broncos after they acquired him in a trade from Detroit on March 2, 2007.

Bly started all 16 games in both seasons in Denver, posting 57 and 77 tackles respectively. He also notched seven interceptions in his two years with the Broncos.

josh bell looked pretty good covering for Champ. if we can get a little pressure from the front 7 we might not miss Bly that much.

anyone getting a feel that we might go after Namdi now?

Paymah had his moments here and there...but I never yelled more at one player this year.

Bly is a very solid corner so either he wasn't going to restructure his contract, or Nolan has faith in Paymah, Bell, or Williams.

I don't mind it....this defense needed an enema.

It would be hard for the defense to be any worse than it was last year.

Our defense was infected with suck and it's time to clean the infected area.

I dunno about his cap impact, but this was his contract per Rotoworld:
3/28/2007: Signed a five-year, $33 million contract. The deal contains $18 million in bonuses. $16 million is guaranteed, including a $9 million "signing bonus" in the second year. 2009-2010: $3.25 million, 2011: $4 million, 2012: Free Agent

Bly was scheduled to make a $3.25 million salary plus $400,000 with a workout bonus this year after making a combined $18.8 million the previous two seasons.

Damn....Bly made out like a bandit the past 2 seasons.
